|Sujet: Tres Chic new album Lun 11 Mar - 18:12|| |
FnA Records releases long-overdue glam rock album from one of Chicago's favorite 'glam bands' – Tres Chic.
Tres Chic loves glam rock! And
Chicago loves Tres Chic! That's how the band would like to be
remembered. Tres Chic were a staple on the Midwest club circuit in the
early 90's bringing their style of 'Glam Rock' to those fans looking to
express themselves through good-time party music and style. The band
held their own for numerous years bringing the party wherever they
played – and the locals knew that this was more than a show, it was a
spectacle not to be missed!
Tres Chic' were born and at the Thirsty Whale (Chicago's premiere
hard rock club), back when big hair and rack systems ruled the stage,
and when a show was a 'show'! The thing that really stood out about
Tres Chic was that these Contempo shopping, street walking, misfits had
more fun drinking and partying than anyone!!! And that's no
exaggeration! They were loud, obnoxious, and very silly looking, but it
didn't stop them from sharing the stage with some of the coolest bands,
playing some of the hottest venues, f@#king some of the most beautiful
ladies, and hosting a ton of garage and backyard parties.
Often compared to the 'other favorite Chicago glam band' Enuff Z'nuff,
Tres Chic took the image of glam ten times further. But it only takes a
little bit of money, a little bit of an eye for the eccentric, and a few
cool chicks wanting to play dress up with you to create a solid 'Glam'
image. Without the music – you had nothing, and you didn't last long
all dolled up on the 'mean streets' of Chicago. Tres Chic did have the
music, and that was evident by the legions of fans who came out to every
show to listen to the band run through memorable song after memorable
song; but perhaps the biggest drawing power was the sing-a-long power
ballad “Memory Lane” – hands down one of the favorite songs on the
“unsigned” Chicago scene in the early 90's.
A power ballad in the late 80's and early 90's gave a band mileage, and
this helped Tres Chic land many coveted opening slots for national
touring artists. Other memorable songs such as “Mothers' Side”,
“Laughing Clownz”, “Love Not War”, “Shy” and “Madame Roxy” helped to
confirm that Tres Chic was a band with momentum. FnA Records proudly
releases Tres Chic's first ever album, Memory Lane,
featuring 20 tracks of 'Glam and Debauchery'. The first 9 tracks
comprise all of the bands studio recordings. Tracks 10 and 11 are taken
from the bands rehearsals, followed by three early demo recordings and
then five live recordings recorded at legendary Chicago clubs (The
Thirsty Whale and the Gateway Theater). The last track is a “nod” to
the fans, the scene, the era, and the party! You only know the down and
dirty details…if you were there. “Some things we can't remember, Some
you will never forget!!”
